My decision hit me. I slammed on my brakes and listened to the rubber of the tires screech against the asphalt.
”Louis what are doing!” Niall shouted.
I saw that I had startled the boys, but I didn’t pay much attention to their reactions. I quickly turned the car around in a u turn, increasing my speed from 55 to 95 miles per hour on the highway.
”What the hell Lou! Slow down, your going to kill us all!” Niall yelled.
I ignored Niall’s comment, as I was concentrating on the white lines in the middle of the road. I knew if I had brought my attention to something else for more than even a second, surely my tires would drift off the side, or even into another car. I turned the hazard lights on and carefully reached for my phone in the middle console.
”Here Niall, text (name to be released) not to do it.”
”What are you talking about, I’m not doing shit until you slow this car the fuck down Lou!” He replied in a frightened tone.
”Do it or I will drive even faster, do it now Niall, or should I? Text while I drive this vehicle. Do it or I will take my phone back and do it my fucking self.”
”Just do it Niall!” Liam yelled from the back.
”Please Lou stop the car, I can’t take this. Slow down, or even let me out!” Harry screamed.
”There is no time to slow the car down Harry.” I told him.
I looked in the rear view mirror, to see Harry in Liam’s arms. As Liam was being forced to squeeze Harry against his chest tightly. The dreadful fear in Harry’s eyes teared at my heart, I felt for him, just not enough to give him the attention and pity he needed.
”Louis, Harry is scared you need to slow down. He can’t be in these type of situations anymore. That car accident has scarred him. Why can’t you respect that!” Liam hissed.
I had too many people angry with me, but I was doing something of more importance. I wasn’t worried for Harry’s prolonging fear of vehicles.
”I’m doing my best to keep this bloody car on the road! Stop yelling at me! It’s hard enough driving on the right side when you’re used to the left, I don’t need more shit running through my head! Harry, calm down, I’m not going to let anything happen to you. Niall I need you to do one more thing for me.”
”And what is that!” Niall said frightened.
”Call the airport, and get my ticket prepared for Heathrow. I’m going back.”
